Suggestions for improvement
- TREAT PEOPLE BETTER. DO NOT TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOUR EMPLOYEES. UNDERSTAND WHY PEOPLE LEAVE. LISTEN TO CRITICISM INSTEAD OF BACKING INTO A CORNER LIKE A DEFENSIVE DOG.
I dislike about the employer
This review is an honest opinion of Chaffin Luhana LLP:
Yes. A disaster. Since I had been with Chaffin Luhana LLP, which is a small firm, several employees had left in a short amount of time, including staff and attorneys. Management takes advantage of their employees. They make it seem like being employed by Chaffin Luhana LLP is a privilege. Pay is terrible. False promises are made. Management cannot take constructive criticism. Any criticism is met with backlash and threats to leave. Suspiciously, a handful of pregnant employees were soon terminated after notification of pregnancy. An employee with a critical illness was terminated. Management likes to claim "they weren't getting the work done." Everyone knows better. They work you to the bone with no benefit in return. Nasty e-mails are typically sent by the managing partner if you leave at a normal time. It's as though having a life is a sin. The managing partner's mother works at the firm. She is admittedly, "the eyes and ears of what goes on" and reports back to the managing partner. The rules do not apply to her as they do everyone else. The partner's at the firm like to create grand illusions of what Chaffin Luhana LLP is and what it will be. It's mere puffery. With the turnover rate, I find it hard to believe they can sustain themselves. Nothing about Chaffin Luhana LLP is quite right. There have been instances where I have seen unethical practices take place.
They like to say employees who left have a habit of "firm hopping," so to speak. WRONG. Every employee who leaves Chaffin Luhana LLP does so in desperation and will take whatever "lifeboat" they can find. Eventually, everyone has landed in places where they have found happiness. Chaffin Luhana LLP creates misery to the point where you feel you no longer have a soul. IF YOU READ THIS AND YOU STILL JOIN CHAFFIN LUHANA LLP, GOOD LUCK! YOU WILL NEED IT! Those of us who have left Chaffin Luhana LLP still keep in touch. We refer to it as the Chaffin Luhana Survivors Club.
